It’s Not Brick Red, It’s Terra Cotta

Chris has been working so hard on the Pope House. Kathleen is making him rest.

Looking from the front to the back of the house.

The highlight for us ladies is the paint on the walls that aren’t brick. We were hoping really hard that the color we picked to complement the brick would work.

The upstairs landing.

We like it! It’s a shade lighter than the actual brick we matched it to and reminds me of a terra cotta pot. The contrast with the white trim and a great, and it will echo the warm tones of the flooring.

Looking into Lee’s office. You can see in the honey-colored bathroom.

The flooring is moving right along, too. Easton finished the remaining subfloor in Lee’s office and the vinyl is snaking out to other rooms.

Vinyl progress.

But the best floor (and hardest) is the shiny tile in my office bathroom. The tiles are teeny tiny. Oh my. That’s what I get for ordering online and not noticing the dimensions. Chris is my new hero for figuring out how to install it properly.

Tiny tiny tiny

It will look great once it’s cleaned up. Ooh. Aah.

Eek. Clashing reds. Trim will separate them. And the tiles will clean up.

You know what? We may actually finish this project!
